What is vaporizing?
Most people smoke cannabis in a joint or a pipe. The Vaporisor can be used for heating dried plants (herbs), without burning, so you can inhale the etherical oils of the plants, without the unuseful bad compounts, such as tar. Some examples of plants that can be vaporised are:Eucalyptus, Mint, Marihuana, Chamomile, thyme, hyssop. After vaporising, when the plant is done a brownish powder remains, no tar or ashes!
Marihuana and hashish contain THC. This is the component of the plant which makes you high. With a Vaporiser you gently heat dried marihuana or hashish, without burning it, so the THC and the etherical oils vaporise. This way you inhale all the good parts of the plant without the tar and other unhealthy stuff. On the pictures you can see the cristals on the marihuanaplant ,which contains THC
HOW DOES IT WORK?
A Vaporisor consists of a glass system with a hot-airgun. The hot-airgun is adjustable between a temperature of 50 and 650 C. Hot air, ± 200 °C, blows through the head with marihuana into a resevoir with water, and is cooled and undone of little particles, which may have blown with the airstream. A soft aromatic vapor containing THC and flavors can be sucked from the long glass tube. The design makes it possible to have an overview of the process. A safety-valve prevents water coming into the head or hot-airgun, when one accidentally coughs into the vaporiser. By keeping the vapor in the lungs for a while, you increase the effect. Because the vapor is very soft this is quite easy.
